Avatar f tn That time her bllod sugar was 224.That time they gave her insuline as well. Is it stroke or any ather condition? Before that she was fine walks around no problem climbing staircase. Is any body know what is this?
Avatar f tn ,she had an right occipital parietal stroke 5 months ago.she was leftwith some visual disturbance and mild left sided weaknes.The first catscan done in the ER showed no changes and an eeg showed mild slowing on left side.Four days later she finally had a mri the MD states it showed ischemic dementia.Can you give me any answers why my mom had mild memory loss one minute and 15 minutes later shes totally confused and on the way to the hospital.
Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.
Avatar f tn I was rather concerned that I may have suffered a mild stroke. Thankfully not. Thank you for your time and response. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn So to those who have been following the birth and scary moments with my little Adam Dale, after more testing today we found out that he had a stroke during or shortly after delivery. They are not sure why but the long term prognosis is pretty good. Still scary as heck but at least we have answers. He seems to be doing really well and has not had any more seizures since early this morning.
Avatar n tn mri was clear but was told with mild strokes it wont always appear on scan??? Was advised to do test to see if enough oxygen is getting to brain. speach is slurred and left side of face is pulling? What should i do?
Avatar f tn My son who is 45 just had a mild stroke, 4days ago, now he can't talk properly, he knows what he wants to say, but the words won't come out!,& he can't write, nothing wrong with his hand, otherwise hes ok,he has headache but the doc told hm, with the medication he only had his right hand tingles & his mouth,, 2years ago he had meningites, he came out ok, nothing damage, Do you think it got something to do with the meningites he had???
Avatar m tn As far as mild MR over 30% of the entire population of the world have mild mitral regurgitation. After time alot of our valves show mild leakage and believe it or not is pretty common considering that the human heart beats over 100,000 times in a 24 hour period thru out our lives so wear and tear would be somewhat expected i think.
Avatar f tn My brother had a massive stroke with a bleed on the brain and brain swelling, he was on a ventilator he can't eat or talk he has nothing on his right side but his left side is functional and he is very alert holds and kisses my hand and he acts like he's trying to tell me something what r his chances of being able to eat and talk again...
Avatar m tn but however the isotop test showed the following, Abnormal SPECT perfusion study suggestive of a medium region of mild ingerior ischemia with a summed difference score of 3 Normal left venticular systolic funtion with an EF of 53%. the basilar two thirds of the inferior wall is equivocal for ischemia. the remaining wall segments demonstrate normal perfusion. I am 45 yrs of age and normally do a spinning call or tread mill for around an hour every other day.
Avatar m tn For a perspective, diastole dysfunction compromises left ventricle filling volume, inadequate stroke volume and operating at a high pressure regimen. LV filling volume is reduced due to increased wall size crowding out available space. Inadequate stroke volume is usually due to wall thickening and stiffening and loss of elasticity. High pressures can dilate upper chamber to compensate for gradient pressure across the mitral valve. That is the pathology.
Avatar f tn My husband just had a mild stroke 4 days ago. He is sleeping a lot. Should I keep waking him up or does his body need the sleep time to heal??
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.
Avatar f tn I have had one reply to my question about post stroke pain and stiffness. The prognosis seems glum. Another words, as I understand it , anti depressives (which my husband has tried several) really are not the answer. It seems that the only releif comes from narcotics.( which have never been perscribed ,or used for him) He also has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure, all of which are being controlled by medication.
Avatar m tn Is he currently in the hospital? Is he under the care of a neurologist? Did they determine the cause of the stroke? Usually a neurologist would treat this condition as they are usually not operable unless the pressure builds up and they need to relieve the pressure. Stroke recovery all depends on where in the brain, how extensive, how fast treatment was given, health before the stoke etc.
Avatar n tn My husband who is 48 had a stroke 2 weeks ago on holiday. He is now back in the UK and is making progress. My question relates to his paralysis on hi right hand side. He has feeling but no movement at all. I have been told he should make a full recovery which is great but I am struggling to understand how these limbs can start to function again? Can anyone please help me?
1515600 tn?1290621008 Enlarged left atrium,mildly thickened mitral leaflets, mild plus 1 mitral regurgitation, mild dystolic left ventricle dysfunction..

Avatar f tn My friend had so much stress she started slurring her words and her eyes looked a little funny and she had had a mild stroke. Another friend had to call her husband and ask him to please take her to the doctor cause she knew something was wrong. Maybe your mom says she is fine for your benefit or maybe she thinks she can handle it but I've come to believe that stress is the basis for a multitude of serious illnesses.
Avatar f tn On July 13, 1017 my father had a stroke due to a blood clot to the right side of his brain, he had some weekness but was very much alert and communicating. He was on a feeding tube. He was admitted to the rehab facility at the hospital he was admitted and was going through some physical therapy, during which he experienced another stroke (2 weeks after the first) this one was on the left side of the brain. He was intubated and pretty un-responsive for approximately 5 days.
Avatar n tn My 84 year old father had a second stroke about 10 weeks ago. He cannot move his left arm and leg, has lost his speech and cannot swallow. He was given the wrong feed in the PEG tube and got severe diarrhea (he has gluten intolerance). He became dehydrated and his blood got too thin due to coumadin. He has atrial fib. Now he is on another feed which seems to suit him better. My question is what is the prognosis for a patient in his condition?
Avatar f tn My 77 year old mother has a massive ischemic stroke 14 months ago which resulted in hemiplegia (left side paralysis) and left side neglect. Despite poor prognosis she made some progress in the first 6 months (was able to stand with assistance) and the physios were expecting further substantial recovery in her leg but not the arm. She then got a urine infection, syncope, and prognosis of possible lung caner.
Avatar n tn She had her first ischemic stroke 8/08, in the right hemisphere. We were told she had very dense paralysis of her leg and arm. She went from not being able to hold her head up, to sitting up and being able to pull her arm and push her leg. Due to previous brain trauma/surgery, her progress was very slow. She was not walking and we started taking her to a physical therapy clinic that specialized in neurological deficits. With aggressive therapy they could get her to walk 100 ft.
Avatar m tn I went in to get another PFT which shows FEV1 of 82% and FVC of 105% and FEV1/FVC of 69%. DLCO was 79%. The doctor said it was mild COPD. Needless to say I quit the MJ smoking at that time. Its been two years since that time and am not on any medication. I workout 3 times a week for 1 hr with weight lifting/cardio ( I do heavy weights--225lbs bench press for 10 reps 3 sets and I can jog a 10 min mile). I also do krav maga twice a week for an hour which is quite strenuous.
